Summer time

What a long pause again... time is running fast. How are you all doing?
In June I managed to transform the garage in a little painting studio. Did some wall and old furniture painting and so I finally have a big window (with a view on the garden:)) at my drawing desk. I'm so excited about it. It is a pleasure to create in such a bright space.

Last month was also time for some travelling. I was visiting Rovinj, a town-peninsula in the Croatian Istria. A place with a splendid scenery and easy going, warm people. Probably the most beautiful town in Istria, a paradise for painters. In fact there are nearly more galleries in the town than restaurants. On a cloudy day, sat in front of an abandoned villa, I painted my second plein air - the town of Rovinj.

My latest painting portrays a place on the Croatian isle Cres, which served as motif for our monthly painting challenge with Matej. Photo reference by Matej.

Wishing you all a happy Sunday.
